Inclusion Quality Mark

An inclusive school

In May 2024, Woodthorpe became the first school in the city to receive the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) and was also named as a Centre of Excellence. 

The award followed a lengthy process of self-evaluation, feedback and a formal two-day assessment visit from inspectors. 

The IQM provides UK schools with a nationally recognised validation of their inclusive practice and ongoing commitment to developing educational inclusion. Schools must be able to demonstrate that inclusion has a school-wide impact and is sustainable.

The IQM states that in a school or education setting, inclusion means that every child and every adult who learns and works in a school is valued and whose educational and personal needs are met, and that it is also about parents and the community in which the school exists.

You can read the inspection report here and find out more about the IQM here.
